Leadership -- a haiku deck presentation

I recently spent a few minutes checking out an iPad app that has been receiving some notoriety in the media:  Haiku Deck.  I played around with its ability to bring images around a particular theme and how the slides appear once you add a few sentences.

I liked it, but, quite frankly, I'm not sure that it's ready for prime time.  When the programmers add the ability to change font colors and maybe a few more layouts, I'll probably like it much more.  But then again, that will make it less than "haiku", won't it?

You be the judge:  here are the fruits of my labor.  If you have a chance, let me know what you think!

Clarion's HRM major aligns with Society for Human Resource Management guidelines

The Society for Human Resource Management has acknowledged that Clarion University’s human resources degree is renewed for alignment with SHRM’s “HR Curriculum Guidebook and Templates.” Throughout the world, 308 programs in 232 educational institutions have been acknowledged by SHRM as being in alignment with its suggested guides and templates.

The “HR Curriculum Guidebook and Templates” were developed by SHRM to define the minimum HR content areas that should be studied by HR students at the undergraduate and graduate levels. The guidelines, created in 2006 and revalidated in 2010 and 2013, are part of SHRM’s Academic Initiative to define HR education standards taught in university business schools and help universities develop degree programs that follow these standards.

SRHM is the world’s largest association devoted to human resource management. Representing more than 250,000 members in over 140 countries, the Society serves the needs of HR professionals and advances the interests of the HR profession.

This recognition involved a conscientious study of courses offered for this major. Administrative Science professors Gustavo Barboza, Ning Chen, Tony Johns, Miguel Olivas-Luján and Chad Smith, and Economics professor and chairperson Rod Roehsler, verified that the coursework required of HRM majors included all the guidelines and recommendations made by SHRM's Academic Initiative. The Academic Initiative defines human resources education standards taught in university business schools and helps universities develop degree programs that follow these standards. SHRM confirmed the recognition that will be valid until December 2016.

The recognition is important for both students and employers interested in personnel management. Clarion's HRM majors learn about professional management of employees and how to maintain compliance with company stakeholders. Companies in need of well-trained HR professionals can be reassured that Clarion's students exceed the minimum content areas recommended by SHRM. Professors in the Administrative Science department are able to identify the students with the highest potential for these positions.

To provide opportunities to enhance leadership and administrative abilities, Clarion University invites students of any major to join its SHRM student chapter, where they can serve as an officer and participate in local, regional and national events. Student chapter members have access to most of the services that professional SHRM membership provides, for a fraction of the cost. To join, email Dr. Miguel R. Olivas-Luján, chapter advisor at Clarion and a long-time member of the society who has served in its Global HR Expertise Panel and other international bodies. Senior HRM student, Tabatha McCormick is President.

SHRM, formerly called the American Society for Personnel Administration, was founded in 1948. It has more than 575 affiliated chapters within the United States and subsidiary offices in China and India.

Clarion University College of Business Administration master's and bachelor's degree programs are also accredited by the Association to Advance Collegiate Schools of Business (AACSB International).

Clarion University is the high-achieving, nationally recognized, comprehensive university that delivers a personal and challenging academic experience.
